Honoring National Water Safety Month

In honor of National Water Safety Month, Dog Days Pool Service is dedicating this blog to families preparing for the upcoming summer months. Pool parties, barbecuing, family and friends gathering are always enjoyable and relaxing in so many ways. This month of May is declared to be “National Water Safety Month” .

(Source: http://www.nationalwatersafetymonth.org/) National Water Safety Month is an annual awareness campaign coordinated by The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals with support from the National Recreation & Parks Association, the American Red Cross and the World Waterpark Association.

These organizations represent businesses and other individuals and agencies involved in bringing safe, enjoyable aquatic activities to the American public, from home pools and spas, to waterparks and resort, to public swimming and water recreation facilities.

Dog Days Pool Service is an owner operated pool service, which has been serving the Clearwater and Safety Harbor, FL area for over 17 years. We strongly believe that our years of experience in the industry are a testament to our skills. We offer an extensive list of services for our customers.

Pool safety is always a big issue to everyone:

SUPERVISION

Children must be watched closely. Don’t let anyone distract you away from your child and if your phone rings and is in another room, please don’t leave your child unattended it can wait. So keep your eyes at your child and the pool at all times.

ALERTNESS

Attentiveness and cleanliness. Anything that can be dangerous for children or anybody in site should be cleared or stored away. If there are toys laying near the pool for your children make sure you’re aware of that. Chemicals or anything slippery can cause harm to your guest or family members.

FATIGUE/FULLNESS

Be careful after a meal or if you are tired. Yes, it can be an old tale but you can never be sure, so be safe in regards to that.

EMERGENCY PLANNING

Preparing and educating yourself and others of emergency purposes in case of an emergency. Having a safety aid kit on standby in case of an emergency is always vital.

TRAINING/TEACHING

Learning CPR, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, is a skill that may save a life. The local YMCA, the Red Cross and many local hospitals offer classes. Swimming lessons, diving lessons, and of course safety lectures to your children about not running around the pool for it is dangerous!
